The technically and artistically stunning young dancers of Valentina Kozlova's Dance Conservatory take the stage in this famed holiday favorite. Set to Tchaikovsky's timeless score, the glittering tale follows young Clara, who receives the gift of a nutcracker at a festive family Christmas party. That night she dreams of a grand adventure that begins with a handsome prince, continues with an epic battle between mice and toys, and comes to a climax with a magical journey to the Land of Sweets to meet the Sugar Plum Fairy.

Pulitzer Prize-winning author Jeffrey Eugenides (Middlesex), Susan Minot (Evening) and Monique Truong (The Book of Salt), who have all been nurtured and inspired by the isolation and vital community of The MacDowell Colony, introduce short stories by emerging writers who have also spent time there. James Baldwin called it a place "to crouch in order to spring."
Located in the woods of southern New Hampshire, The MacDowell Colony has been giving artists the freedom to create and interact with other artists across disciplines for 100 years. Leonard Bernstein, Willa Cather, Aaron Copeland, Galway Kinnell, Virgil Thompson, Alice Walker and Thornton Wilder have all retreated there.
